In many cases we know this and accept it, and have entered into a sort of compact. Perhaps we don't even want the object to last forever. Such voluntary obsolescence makes craftsmanship beside the point. We have grown to expect and even relish the easy birth and early death of objects."
Author: Ellen Ruppel Shell

Even sleep, that deplorable curtailment of the joy of life, can be full of dreams; and the most common actions--a walk, a talk, solitude in one's own orchard--can be enhanced and lit up by the association of the mind. Beauty is everywhere, and beauty is only two finger's-breadth from goodness."
Author: Virginia Woolf
